What do you think is causing this new surge?

Is it area specific? --73.120.xx.xxx

Things have been locked down here pretty tight for so long i think people are either sick of it or they just realize they have to deal with these houses before they loose them to taxes --72.231.xxx.xxx

I hope you don't mind me asking, but what is the average price of homes in that area. Not what you paid but what's sold for similar homes on the retail market? Thank you in advance. --47.155.xx.xxx

This boom really surprises me in the middle of a pandemic where jobs are being cut and tomorrow's income is uncertain for so many.

I see properties in low income areas and homes in nice neighborhoods flying off the market, at, or above asking price! --172.58.xxx.xxx

People are moving from the cities. Lockdown has different meanings in different places. Rural/suburbs do not have the same issues that city dwellers do. --50.82.xxx.xxx

Real estate is a game where we always play with others money (bank)

All real estate should always be for sale for the right price

Find a Professional COMMERCIAL broker to always list your entire portfolio for a bulk sale price

You may be surprised - you too may be able to retire and move out of "living hell" NYS --73.61.xx.xx

NHSailmaker, if we sold our entire portfolio, where would we put the money to earn any sort of return? Anytime anyone suggests selling it all, I wonder - what then? --50.82.xxx.xxx

WMH [NC]. What to do with your money? - hmmmm that is a dilemma very few in the world can say they will ever have

That is also the opportunity that the wealthiest in the world use to get creative and seize new ideas

We are in historic times with major unrest and uncertainty - it forces many to hunker down ......then there are the people that seeze opportunity

take 2 seconds and write down what things look like the unlimited expanse of opportunities like the old Wild West - If nothing comes to your mind you may not be a person that seeks opportunities

14 years ago I was spoon fed paralyzed. My Olympic Sailing career over. My days as a self run Landlord portfolio were over - I wasn't climbing ladders anymore

I hired people to do the land lording things and then went out and became a national leader in the energy saving field. I looked at many other opportunities but saw that as a gold mine. Within 6 months I was on many local News and News Magazines shows each with our Governor , Senator and Congressmen and

then called to Washington by Dept of Energy and worked with our National Laboratories on energy saving studies

Our television is full of leaf gutter commercials - where was that a few years ago? Maybe it is time to figure out a way to create a new emergency prepared plan for the masses - a series of boxes with everything from simple solar and dry foods Amazon was a book seller just a few decades ago - Twitter wasn't even a word a decade ago

You can do this on the side until you see if it works but sitting still and waiting for life to come to you is no way to exist in a very volatile time

Ken, I respect your price base and your family situation. I too have roots in Crazy Los Angeles, otherwise I'd think of moving too. Here homes start at 1/2 million, while in other parts of the country they range at 10K to 80K. Some areas are too high and other are too low. Your prices seem just right. --47.155.xx.xxx

I was dealing with someone yesterday. I had bought her former place from the county in November. The county had it for about 3.5 years before selling it to me.

That FORMER owner offered to sell me the place I just bought yesterday. Now that is a classy business model. Lose it and then sell after its gone. --24.101.xxx.xx

Ray,keep her number if you sell it or refi it within 2 years you may have a problem getting title insurance,if you have her sign a quit claim deed to you $500 or whatever amount then she acknowledges giving up her rights to the place and will make it much easier to get a title policy on the place --72.231.xxx.xxx

Ken, this still confuses me so, please forgive my ignorance and slow brain.

Why would Ray need to do that if he bought it from the county that held it for 3.5 years? --73.120.xx.xxx

6x6 title companies dont like to give a title policy when a house was foreclosed for unpaid taxes because the municipal attorneys are known for doing a very poor job of completing the foreclosures,typically it is 2 years here but since he just bought it from the municipality i think the local title companies in my area would still not want to insure it,especially if the former owner is still living in the house which may be the case if he met the former owner which i am assuming he met her at the property and she is still acting like the owner --72.231.xxx.xxx
